Hard not to come across as over-critical here, but I’m seeing a number of low quality tracks enter Audiojungle lately and was wondering if the standards had been lowered. I understand it’s all subjective and all, but really??
Also, I’m a little confused about the criteria for being featured - is it really about quality? Isn’t the goal to feature commercially viable, high quality tracks? If so why do almost none of the tracks come close to some of the other top sellers? Sure, occasionally the staff (or whoever chooses the tracks) makes a super great pick, and that track usually sells loads by the end of it, but for every great track there are at least 4-5 that are, in all honesty, really average. Almost random. I have heard tracks put on the front page that I myself would have rejected…
So what’s the deal? There are many amazing tracks on Audiojungle that deserve to be seen (and sold!), but instead I’m seeing more and more mediocre (bad mix, repetitive, low quality, dated) tracks.
Without calling out specific authors or items, I couldn’t help but notice that one recent featured item had no fewer than 10 clones of that same track in the author’s portfolio. (And there are undoubtedly more. I just stopped counting and gave up…) I mean… do the staff even bother to look at the authors’ portfolios?
Which begs the question - who exactly chooses the features - and what really are the criteria?
